Harry Redknapp has dismissed any offer being made for his most prized asset in typical Harry fashion.
The 21-year-old bagged a hat-trick against Crawley Town last night in the Carabao Cup and showed his worth.
Just how much worth remains to be seen, as if that matters anyway, as the boss said he’s not for sale:
“I don’t know what he’s worth but he’s certainly worth a lot more than £3m – he’s not for sale and we don’t want to sell him.
As for the suspected £3million bid made from former gaffer Gary Rowett revealed by reports yesterday, Harry said this when asked about it:
“Not that I know of. How much? £3mill? Good luck.
“I’ve only got three strikers on my books, we are not interested in selling him to Derby.”
Che Adams was subbed off midway in the second half after his composed performance, but the Blues boss feels he’s still got some way to go to become a top player:
“He was good tonight, he has got to keep that going over the season but he is learning the game,” Redknapp said.
“He still has a long way to go but he has got the potential to be a good player.”
So it looks like Redknapp is keen to keep his man, but an improved contract on the one he signed last year (a package worth £1.9m) would come in handy and he is hoping the club can deliver one:
“You have got to give him a good deal, that is something I think the club are in the process of doing.”
